By Luke Furman

Artur Szpilka (16-0, 12 KOs) is hoping to quickly resolve an issue with his visa. The boxer arrived in Chicago on Sunday, but homeland security sent him back to Poland over a visa issue. The Polish heavyweight is scheduled to face Bryant Jennings (17-0, 9 KOs) in an HBO televised contest on January 25th at New York's Madison Square Garden.

"I have not slept for 24 hours, but I'm still going to train," said Szpilka upon his arrival back in Poland. "I need only eight days for to acclimate to New York, so I have more [days] than I planned. I am hopeful [that everything gets reolved]."

Really hope this comes off. In the first three months of the year, I have this fight in my top 3-4 of ones im looking forward too. Pascal Bute, Canelo Angulo, and Salido Lomachenko being the others
